Bhai Dooj is celebrated on the last day of the five-day-long celebrations of Diwali. Like everyone, even Bollywood is in the spirit of the festive mood. The entire B-Town celebrated Diwali as they came together at Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor’s grand Diwali parties. Today, it is the auspicious occasion of Bhai Dooj when sisters pray for a long and healthy life of their brothers and the siblings exchange gifts with each other. The origin of the festival goes way back in time and many believe that it is celebrated after Lord Krishna blessed Subhadra when she invited him to celebrate his victory over Narakasur.
With such a long history, Bhai Dooj is all about the love and affection between a brother and a sister. On the occasion of the festival today, let’s have a look at the five not-so-famous siblings of famous Bollywood celebrities who have maintained a distance from the world of glamour.
1) Shehnaz Lalarukh Khan and Shah Rukh Khan
The king of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan shares a very warm relationship with sister Shehnaz. SRK has an insane fan following and love coming across from all parts of the world but his sister has kept herself away from the media and is living a quiet and peaceful life. It is believed that she stays with King Khan at his plush bungalow Mannat and we are really thinking how she manages to keep herself away from the media’s prying eyes.
2) Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and Ranbir Kapoor
Like everyone in the Kapoor clan, Riddhima is also blessed with good looks but she chooses to stay away from the cameras. She is an elder sister of Ranbir Kapoor and daughter to Neetu and Rishi Kapoor. She took a different route and chose family over career. Riddhima shares a great camaraderie with Ranbir and the duo is pure sibling goals. Married to a Delhi-based businessman, Bharat Sahni, she has her own jewellery brand named ‘R Jewellery’.
3) Alka Bhatia and Akshay Kumar
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar who goes by the real name Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia has a beautiful sister named Alka Bhatia who has been away from the showbiz. She is married to entrepreneur Surendra Hiranandani who is the co-founder of the Hiranandani group. However, Alka made the news during her marriage with Surendra because of their huge age gap. Moreover, Akki shares a very close bond with his sister.
4) Ritika Bhavnani and Ranveer Singh
Ritika who is a camera-shy person is the elder sister of Ranveer Singh. She is a sister every brother wishes to have. The duo shares a really beautiful bond and earlier the Simmba actor had also revealed that he considers Ritika as his angel and she loves him unconditionally. A protective brother which he is, Ranveer always makes sure to seek his sister’s blessings by touching her feet on the occasion of any festival.
5) Kritika Tiwari and Kartik Aaryan
Many people are not aware of the fact that Kartik Aaryan’s real name is Kartik Tiwari. The actor who hails from Gwalior made his way in Bollywood without any godfather and is one successful name today. However, his sister Kritika Tiwari is totally opposite to him and is away from the glamorous world. He is very close to her and the two often keep sharing pictures of each other on social media. Kritika who is all set to be a doctor recently bagged her MBBS degree which was a rejoicing moment for his proud brother and the entire family.
